TitleCopy letter from Michael Foster, to John Scott Keltie
Date12 July 1899
DescriptionKeltie did right in suspending summonses for the General Committee but Foster thinks Keltie's President [Clements Markham] takes the wrong view. The Committee ought to meet to know the view of the Sub-Committees and to draw up a provisional plan of investigations to be pursued. Has written to Keltie's President to that effect and submitted his letter to Lord [Joseph] Lister. If Lister approves this letter will be sent to Keltie's President with a request that he wire his views to Foster at once.
